A Mother's Gift (1995 TV Movie)
User ReviewsAdd a Review
My advice is to stay away from the movie and go read the book and the sequel, which is "A White Bird Flying."
She and Adrian Pasdar meet and marry as they decide to go pioneering in Nebraska territory. She had dreams of a musical career, possibly another Adeline Patti or Jenny Lind. But as it was the case with women in those days you just didn't have it all, you had to choose between motherhood and a career and the pressure was for the former.
With not just make up but with talent McKeon ages gracefully through the years. She's quite remarkable in the part. As her husband Adrian Pasdar matches her all the way.
Watching A Mother's Gift you might think you were looking at Little House On The Prarie. There are certainly resemblances. Still A Mother's Gift more than holds its own.
